Swedish/British SONIC SYNDICATE have set “We Rule The Night” as the title of their new album, due in Europe on May 28 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Bohus Sound studios in Kungälv, Sweden with producer Toby Wright, who has previously worked with KORN, SLAYER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, KISS, FEAR FACTORY, IN FLAMES, STONE SOUR and OZZY OSBOURNE, among others.
The cover artwork for “We Rule The Night” was created by Gustavo Savez of Abstrata Art and can be viewed below.
Commented the band: “We asked Gustavo to create a bright cover that was also very dark to fit with the title of out new album.
“After countless hours of frustration and adjustments, an e-mail arrive[d] with what has now become the brightest yet darkest cover we could possibly hope for.”
CrankItUp.se conducted an interview with SONIC SYNDICATE and Toby Wright during the recording sessions for the new CD. Watch the chat below.
SONIC SYNDICATE’s “Burn This City” video was shot with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL) of Revolver Film Company.
“Burn This City”, which marked the recording debut of the band’s latest addition, British singer Nathan James Biggs (formerly of THE HOLLOW EARTH THEORY), was one of two tracks that were laid down at Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden. Both cuts appeared on a new EP, “The Rebellion Pack”, which was released on November 9, 2009 as part of an all-in-one-package with the group’s latest album, “Love And Other Disasters”.
